The Shire of Northam provides two library facilities for the enjoyment of Shire residents, located in the towns of Northam and Wundowie.

These libraries share an online catalogue, in which patrons may view and renew their items, make purchase suggestions and select items for hold to be picked up at either library.

Items at the libraries include fiction and non fiction books (in both regular print and large print), DVDs, audio books, puzzles and board games. The libraries also offer a large selection of electronic resources funded by the State Library of Western Australia, including BorrowBox, Overdrive, and access to For the last, please contact the library to book a time with our Local History librarian, as this can only be accessed at the library.

Public access computers are available at no charge at both libraries for the use of library patrons. Printing services are available at a cost; currently scanning facilities are not available at either library.

The libraries offer a full range of programs such as Baby Rhyme Time and Storytime (under the auspices of the Better Beginnings program of the State Library), IT Help (grant funded by BeConnected) and a housebound delivery service that covers the Shire. For information on any of these programs, please contact the library on 08 9621 1600, or check our Facebook group for the latest information, and to engage in lively discussions.

Membership of the library is free for any resident of WA; if you are visiting from interstate, we are happy to join you as a transient visitor if you wish to make use of our computer facilities.

Your library membership offers you access to a range of eResources! Simply use your library card number to login to the below eResources and create an account.
